In line with the Trust’s ethos of ‘art for everyone’, Coventry Presents: British Police Symphony Orchestra is intended to be accessible to a ‘non-traditional’ classical audience, who might not ordinarily consider attending a performance by a symphony orchestra. We hope that this one contains something for them or that represents them. Expect variety, creativity and excitement, along with some not to be missed surprises.
Different community groups have been asked to choose melodies and music for the BPSO to perform that they feel are representative of their culture; for instance, Irish, Caribbean, South Asian, Middle Eastern and more. This will be a beautiful tour and insight into different types and styles of music from around the globe celebrating the diversity that makes Coventry so special. We will also have community involvement in the form of musicians, dancers and performers.
The concert will offer low cost tickets and some groups will be directly invited to the evening free of charge.
Preceding the evening symphony concert will be a matinee showcase of workshop based ‘outreach’ work conducted with school groups ahead of 7th May.
